Focus Features made its first buy at Sundance today, paying some $2 million to beat out rival bidders to acquire worldwide rights to first-time director Jamie Travis's "For a Good Time, Call..." The film, which had its world premiere this week in Park City, is a timely comedy about two young women with little in common who room together in New York. When the reserved Lauren finds out that Katie, her roommate, works part-time as a phone-sex operator, the two strike up a friendship and a business partnership to boot, starting their own 1-900 business.
